Detroit Auto Show: Ford Edge ST Looks, Acts Sportier

Share

That's right, a hot SUV with a sprinkling of Ford Performance magic is coming.

Starting this summer, enthusiasts can purchase the all-new 2019 Edge ST-the first sport utility vehicle designed by Ford Performance. The new 2019 Ford Edge will come equipped with the standard 2-liter engine, offering enhanced performance and fuel economy compared to its predecessor.

An understated mid-sized people mover, the Edge may seem an unlikely place for Ford to start spicing up its SUV line. That engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, standard all-wheel drive with selectable traction control. On Thursday, the carmaker pulled the cover off the lastest member of its Ford Performance division: the Edge ST SUV.

In addition to his team-high 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting, Dragić also had a game-high nine assists. With Miami trailing 89-88, Wayne Ellington made a game-winning layup with 0.3 seconds remaining.

Ford's first SUV to be tuned by the Ford Performance team - features the most powerful V6 engine available in its class with a specially tuned 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine pumping out 335 horsepower and 380 lb. -ft. of torque. Available 21-inch wheels round off the souped-up Edge's intentioned look, but Ford made sure to throw plenty of "ST" badges around the interior as well as paddle shifters and bolstered seats so occupants don't forget that this is actually a full-blown performance model, not just an overpowered grocery-getter.

The fully-fledged ST looks like it will be staying in America. This includes a large central grille opening and unique sculpting through the middle and bottom of the front fascia, introducing the same basic angular design that gives the ST cars their aggressive face.

The brakes are now part of a group of standard features for safety on the Edge, said Ford, including technology that helps to detect objects as well as pedestrians and help prevent collisions by braking and steering automatically for drivers.

Ford Motor Co. will introduce an all-new sporty Edge ST to its lineup in 2018. And the 2019 Edge adds the latest version of Ford's Sync infotainment system and the Ford Pass Connect package of services. An embedded Wi-Fi modem capable of supporting 10 devices up to 50 feet (15 m) from the vehicle is standard. You also get better brakes.

New driver-assist features include post-collision braking, to reduce the possibility of additional damage following an accident; an available adaptive cruise control system that functions down to a full stop and resumption of speed; and Evasive Steering Assist.
